Thermal Profiling

Thermal profiling is the recording of time and temperature throughout a thermal process – most often to measure exposure within an oven. Used in many industries, thermal profiling collects data on a product’s thermal transformation experience, which is then analyzed to optimize complex process settings and conditions to ensure quality results. A pioneer in the design of the traveling thermal profiler, ECD has developed a suite of thermal data logging products that serve the electronics, baking, industrial and solar industries, among others.

Thermal Profiling for Printed Circuit Board (PCB) Assembly

PCB profiling tools are used to create a repeatable, in-control soldering process that meets the specifications required by solder paste and/or component manufacturers. Only through proper profiling can the actual component temperatures within a reflow soldering process become known. Thermal profiling is essential to set the proper time and temperature exposures for good soldering outcomes of specific PCB designs by determining the correct process settings (known as the recipe) and then verifying the process periodically for repeatability.

Baking

Thermal Profiling for Baking

Profiling in demanding baking operations — where bakers are constantly pushed to provide longer product shelf-life and produce competitively-priced baked goods — can often sometimes mean the difference between profit and loss. With robust thermal profiling in your arsenal, you have a competitive edge.

Profiling helps deliver:

  • Product Consistency
  • Process Repeatability
  • Optimized Use of Ingredients
  • Improved Yield & Throughput
  • Low Energy Consumption & Cost
  • Increased Bakery Profitability

Thermal Profiling Products

Six-channel thermal profilers are the most effective for process heating applications. For specific processes –such as furnace surveys or new product development, for example — where more data points are required, the 20-channel MEGAM.O.L.E.® is recommended.

  • Three-channel V-M.O.L.E.® best for smaller parts and narrower conveyance.
  • Six-channel SuperM.O.L.E.® Gold 2 with RF for wireless real-time process profile monitoring.
  • 20-channel MEGAM.O.L.E.® for Furnace and Survey applications.

As each process is unique, it is best to consult with an ECD expert to assess the ideal M.O.L.E. for your requirements.
